The BEST Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Bread

As promised, I'm finally getting around to telling you about my recent fall obsession:  Chocolate chip pumpkin bread. Not only is it super easy to make, but it turns out beautifully, topped with melted chocolate chips that will make you want to eat the whole loaf.

Is your mouth watering? Mine definitely is. It is THAT good people!

Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Bread

Here's what you need:

2 cups whole wheat flour
1 cup canned pure pumpkin (unsweetened)
1 cup chocolate chips
3 large eggs
1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, softened
1 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup regular sugar

1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp vanilla extract

Here's how to make it:

1. Preheat oven to 350°F, grease 9x5 loaf pan
2. Whisk together flour, baking soda, baking powder, salt, and spices in a medium bowl.
3. In a large mixing bowl, use an electric mixer to cream butter and sugars until well combined. Beat in eggs one at a time, then add vanilla and pumpkin.
4. Add dry ingredients, mixing until everything is evenly combined. Then, add in chocolate chips (save some for the top!)

5. Pour batter into loaf pan and sprinkle chocolate chips on top (I sprinkled a lot!), then bake for about 1 hour, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. Once it's ready to come up, let it cool for about 15 minutes then run a knife around the pan edges to make sure it doesn't stick.

And there you have it, it's that easy! I must say, it doesn't take much to make this look pretty. It does most of the work for you! I sliced some up and took it to a tailgate last weekend and it was a huge hit!

What's your favorite way to incorporate pumpkin into a tasty treat?
